"I can hardly believe that our event is celebrating 3 years in Kissimmee, 4 years in Miami and 7 years in Tampa, Florida since we first started!"
This exciting FREE family & community festival features LIVE Entertainment, Food & Cultural Vendors - PLUS Cuban Sandwich contestants and vendors from all over the world!
In the last 7 years, we have made the biggest Cuban Sandwich in the world every year, starting with a 36 foot Cuban Sandwich on the first year, and building it all the way up each year!
In 2018 we made a 162 ft Cuban sandwich! The sandwich is always donated to a home shelter and to date we have fed over 2,500 homeless people!
Cuban Sandwich Festivals were created by Latin Times Media, Inc.
